About the Artist: Jyotish

Nayaswami Jyotish is a painter and leads a yogic life. Jyotish paints primarily in oil and many of his paintings contain images that are spiritually meaningful. Mountains, the abode of ancient yogis, suggest both aspiration and seclusion. The ocean symbolizes infinity, while waves often indicate the ego pulling away from infinity and then merging back into it.

Jyotish’s colors are vivid, bridging the gap between the material world and the astral or heavenly worlds of heightened senses.  Paramhansa Yogananda, author of Autobiography of a Yogi, is often depicted in Jyotish’s paintings as a symbol of enlightened awareness.

“Intuition is calm feeling. To bring intuitive inspiration to art, one must transcend the emotions and rind rest in the calmness of deep feeling.

Necessary for this level of clarity is devotion to God, or to Truth. Prayer and meditation are necessary. An attitude of receptivity, not of self-assertion, is necessary. For, ultimately, we cannot create anything. All we can do is express, to the best of our ability, that which already is.”
